At its heart, sewing is simple. Even the most complex sewing project can be broken down into basic steps. Janome had this in mind when they designed the Sewist 509 sewing machine. It’s made for the sewist who wants to do the many thousands of projects that require just a few good stitches: home dec, quilting, garment construction and crafts. It’s also for the beginner who wants a reliable machine that will be easy to use right away.

The third in the popular Sewist series, the 509 gets the basics right, giving users many top-line features for an economy model price. It has nine essential stitches, including two straight stitches, zig zag and appliqué and a four-step buttonhole. It’s a complete sewing package affordable enough for even the most modest budget. The 509 is very simple to operate, changing quickly from stitch to stitch. But most importantly, it produces beautiful results. With a jam proof, full rotary hook and top drop in bobbin, plus Janome’s reliable tension, the Sewist 509 stitches smoothly and quietly through all types of fabric – even multiple layers.

“The Sewist 509 weighs just 17 lbs.,” says Cynthia Scott, Educational Coordinator for Janome America. “They designed it to be easy to take to sewing class and easy to sew on once you’re there.”

The 509 sewing bed has two nice features: a sewing ruler printed on the machine in conjunction with a storage compartment that snaps off for free arm sewing. The machine controls are simple and intuitive, including a reverse stitch lever within easy reach of the right hand for quick lock-offs.
